Zac Efron & Pal Seth Rogen Spoof Kanye West Video With 'Bound 4'

11/27/2013 10:38am EST
Zac Efron & Seth Rogen
Zac Efron is the latest star to spoof Kanye West and Kim Kardashian's ridiculous "Bound 2" music video.

In the original video, the rapper's fiancee appears topless in silhouette for scenes depicting the couple riding through a desert landscape on a motorcycle. The wind blows through Kardashian's hair as she bounces up and down along the highway.

Before Efron got in on the fun, James Franco and Seth Rogen recreated the video frame by frame, with Rogen playing Kardashian, appearing topless and kissing and cuddling Franco while reclining on the seat of the chopper.

The following day, Efron ...

Weird Celebrity News: Robert Pattinson Is A Hoarder, Seth Rogen Writes Film About A Sausage

9/28/2013 1:03pm EDT
Robert Pattinson
Weird and unusual things sometimes happen in the lives of celebrities. Here's a roundup of this week's strangest stories...

"Twilight" star Robert Pattinson has an unusual obsession: he collects suits. The problem? He's wears them only once and then doesn't get rid of them.

He recently told Britain's Sunday Express: "I only ever wear them once so I have a storage unit with about 1,000 suits. Occasionally I'll give them to friends, but, to tell you the truth, I'm a bit of a hoarder. I find it really difficult to give things away."

Check out more weird news of the week...

Seth Rogen To Throw A 'Sausage Party'

Seth Rogen
Seth Rogen is making an R-rated animated movie about a sausage. Rogen has teamed up with his This Is The End co-director Evan Goldberg to pen a risqué comedy for Sony called Sausage Party.

The film is based on an original idea by Goldberg, Rogen and their fellow Superbad star Jonah Hill. The dynamic duo won't be directing the movie, however, and will instead focus on writing the script with Kyle Hunter and Ariel Shaffir.

Meanwhile, DreamWorks Animation pro Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan will be taking on directing duties. Rogen and Goldberg are also on board to co-produce the movie with V...

Seth Rogen And Zac Efron Battle It Out As 'Neighbors' (Watch The Trailer)

9/3/2013 11:06am EDT
Seth Rogen and Zac Efron are set to do battle in Spring 2014 comedy Neighbors.

The new red band trailer for the film reveals that all-out war between the two, who play neighbors in a small college town.

Rogen and Rose Byrne play a young couple with a newborn baby living in a small town when a college fraternity, let by Efron, moves into the house next door.

Things look good at first, but when the rowdy parties at the frat house begin happening, Rogen declares war on his new neighbors.

"Neighbors", directed by Nick Stoller (Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Get Him to the Greek), opens in theat...

Top 10 Stars Who Are Always Typecast In Their Movies

7/20/2013 11:00am EDT
Grown Ups 2
People tend to judge a movie by its cast. For example, when you see Adam Sandler on the poster of a new movie, you'll expect it to be a family comedy. We all know the saying, "Don't judge a book by its cover," but how can we not?

We at Starpulse would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge our favorite actors and actresses who have been diagnosed with a severe case of typecastitis. Symptoms: playing a certain type of character for way too long, earning nicknames like “Hollywood’s bad girl,” and people being able to guess an entire movie’s plot-line just by seeing the actor’s face on ...

Holed up in Franco's home in California, the actors need to survive the apocalypse and each other. The trailer is full of nasty jokes and over-the-top gore. Check it out!

This Red Band trailer is recommended for viewers over the age of 17

Seth Rogen
Film bosses have pulled early trailers for new Seth Rogen comedy Neighborhood Watch from Florida cinemas following the shooting of African-American teenager Trayvon Martin.

The 17-year-old student was gunned down in Sanford by a neighborhood watch volunteer, George Zimmerman, last month. Zimmerman has not been arrested, with his lawyer claiming the 28 year old was acting in self-defense when he shot unarmed Martin.

The teenager's death is continuing to cause outrage in the U.S., and executives at Twentieth Century Fox have made the decision to pull early promotional material for the upc...

Seth Rogen Didn't Make Wife Sign A Prenup

1/19/2012 8:43am EST
Seth ROgen & wife
Happily married Seth Rogen refused to force his new wife to sign a prenuptial agreement before they wed - because he's convinced she's worth every penny he owns.

The star wed his longtime girlfriend Lauren Miller in October but unlike most celebrity couples, the two decided against signing legal documents to protect the actor's assets in the event of a divorce.

And Rogen insists such a contact wasn't necessary.

He tells Us Weekly, "If I lose millions, then it'll be the best millions I've spent."

The pair has only been married for a few months, but the funnyman is certain he's already ch...

Celebrities That Turn 30 in 2012

Celebrities That Turn 30 in 2012
It's hard to believe for many of us the 1982 was 30 years ago. In that year, Ronald Reagan was President, Joe Montana was the Superbowl XVI MVP and the space shuttle Columbia made its first mission.

In movies, E.T., Tootsie and Gandhi ruled the box office while Chariots of Fire took best picture at the Academy Awards that year. Also taking home Oscar gold for best actor and actress in 1982 respectively were Katharine Hepburn and Henry Fonda for On Golden Pond. In music Michael Jackson released Thriller which sold more than 25 million copies, becoming the biggest selling album in history.


Seth Rogen Won't Rule Out 'Pineapple Express' Sequel

Seth Rogen
Seth Rogen is keen to reteam with James Franco in a sequel to their 2008 movie Pineapple Express.

In the comedy drama film, the actors played stoners who go on the run after accidentally witnessing a murder.

And now Rogen is eyeing a return to the film and admits Franco and himself often joke about reprising their characters.

He tells, "I don't think it's so precious that I wouldn't want to ruin it with a sequel. So yeah, I would be (into it).

"We talk about it. We joke around about it."

5 Best Movies On The Humorous Side Of Child Endangerment

12/9/2011 10:00am EST
The Sitter Poster
Why do we love R-rated comedy? Answer: The swearing is better. This sex is more comical. The shenanigans are more extreme. What makes any R-rated comedy better? Answer: Children.

The addition of children to any hilarious movie only makes that movie more hilarious. Having kids along for the ride takes all the things we love about these films and intensifies them. Having a kid in the car during a chase scene makes the danger more real and more frightening (hence the title of this column). Swearing, the lifeblood of any R-rated comedy, seems all the more taboo when it’s done in front of kids....

Seth Rogen Feared Audiences Wouldn't Take Him Seriously In '50/50'

Seth Rogen
Comedy actor Seth Rogen worried about filming serious scenes in cancer movie 50/50 in case his dramatic performance came across as "false."

Rogen plays the best friend of a sick man, portrayed by Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and several parts of the movie take on a sombre tone.

But the Knocked Up star feared his past roles would make cinema goers doubt his sincerity.

He tells Sky News, "The serious scenes scared me a lot more than the comedy scenes. There are some scenes that are not played for laughs... and I was much more worried about that than the comedic scenes.

"Those had a lot more pote...

Funnyman Andy Samberg is facing allegations of copyright infringement over two songs he performed with Rihanna and Seth Rogen on hit comedy show Saturday Night Live.

Musicians Aleric Banks, aka Rick Tha Ruler, and Monique Hines claim they composed the music Samberg and his The Lonely Island band mates used on their Rihanna collaboration Shy Ronnie and the Rogen-assisted Like a Boss.

The duo accuses Samberg of taking the tunes and putting his own comedic lyrics to them for musical skits on SNL.

Actor Seth Rogen has landed a raunchy role in his wife Lauren Miller's new comedy - as a saucy airplane pilot.

The funnyman recently began shooting scenes for upcoming movie "For a Good Time, Call...," and admits it was the first time he has had a chance to work with Miller, who he married last month.

He tells Esquire magazine, "She (Miller) wrote this movie called 'For a Good Time, Call...' about two girls who start a phone sex line, and I play one of the callers, an airplane pilot.

"We were figuring what kind of people would actually call phone sex lines and we thought airplane pilots ...

Joseph Gordon-Levitt's '50/50' Head Shaving Scene Was Improvised

9/30/2011 2:00pm EDT
Movie 50 50
The posters for the new movie 50/50 already give away one of the major scenes. Joseph Gordon-Levitt shaves his head on camera. He plays a man coping with a cancer in which he has a 50 percent chance of surviving. Seth Rogen plays his supportive friend, and as the film’s producer joked about the iconic scene.

“We did it twice, six months apart,” Rogen said while doing press at the Toronto International Film Festival. “Yeah, we only could do that once and we improvised it for the most part, which could’ve been the stupidest thing anyone’s ever done because we really could only do it once.”


Q&A: Seth Rogen & Will Reiser Talk '50/50,' Head Shaving & Self Improvement

50 50
Hollywood doesn’t generally show young people dealing with cancer, especially not 20-somethings like Adam (Joseph Gordon-Levitt). And if it’s going to explore such a serious topic, it’s almost certainly not going to make light of the situation like “50/50.”

Adam doesn’t drink, he doesn’t smoke, and he definitely doesn’t do drugs. It comes as a huge surprise then, when he is diagnosed with a rare form of cancer, and told he has a 50 percent chance of beating it. To brave the fight, Adam must lean on his best friend Kyle (Seth Rogen), who seems more interested in picking up women and ...

Seth Rogen Calls Barbra Streisand Mom, Dumps Yvonne Strahovsky In 'My Mother's Curse'

Seth Rogen in My Mothers Curse
Seth Rogen has had many comedy costars: Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, Jonah Hill, James Franco. Next he has a true diva. Barbra Streisand plays his mother in My Mother’s Curse. Not many people get to call Babs mom.

“I didn’t call her that that often but it was great,” Rogen said while promoting this week’s new release 50/50 at the Toronto International Film Festival. “We actually worked very well together I think. It was a lot like Joe [Gordon-Levitt] in that she really was into being a comedy team. She really embraced the idea that it was a buddy comedy with a mother and son.”

The duo goes on...

A doctor tells a young man he has cancer - a tumor. The man replies 'Tumor...Me?' The doctor says 'yes'. The man responds...'That's impossible...I don't smoke...I don't drink...I recycle.'

The young man is Adam Lerner (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) and he not only has cancer...but he has a super rare cancer...a giant tumor growing along his spine and his chances are...50-50.

So what does a person do with this kind of news? Well, writer Will Reiser, the real life person that this happened to, turned his life threatening disease, into a very funny, very touching and very beautiful movie entitled...

Review: Equal Parts Storytelling And Acting Give Powerful '50/50' Real Resonance

9/26/2011 6:00pm EDT
50/50 photo
I recently spotted an ad for "50/50" which proudly proclaimed 'brought to you by the guys who did Superbad' – bad move. Not that there isn’t some Seth Rogen-esk humor within or some amusing levity brought to the morose subject of cancer, but the true impact behind the brilliance of "50/50" lies in its drama.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt stars as Adam, a young man who has a great life, good friends and a wonderful girlfriend. But at the early age of twenty-seven he finds his life altered virtually overnight when he is suddenly diagnosed with cancer. It’s proves to be a whole new world for Adam w...

Trailer Talk: This Week in Movies 50/50
After hearing all the hype about “Drive,” I couldn’t believe how much I hated it. It starts out promising: director Nicolas Winding Refn has some cool backseat perspectives of the driver (Ryan Gosling), and a sleek electronic soundtrack gives his shots of LA a seedy, neon glow.

However the directing quickly becomes pretentious, since Refn frequently reuses the same types of shots. Then the 80s style pop starts to feel COMPLETELY wrong, especially when you’re hit by unexpected, excessive violence on screen. These things would be more tolerable though, if the film effectively built drama...

I talked with Jonah Hill on Monday about his role in “Moneyball” and Seth Rogen on Wednesday for his upcoming film “50/50.” Look out this week for my Jonah Hill interview and the next for mine with Seth Rogen.

Hollywood loves movies inspired by true stories this week, since they represent four of the six opening in theaters. You’ll have the opportunity to see the Brad Pitt baseball vehicle “Moneyball,” the Taylor Lautner espionage thriller “Abduction,” the Gerard Butler redemption tale “Mac...

Comedian Chris Tucker is preparing to make his Hollywood comeback - he's in talks for two new movie roles starring alongside Robert De Niro, Bradley Cooper and Ben Stiller.

The funnyman, who was last seen on the big screen in 2007's "Rush Hour 3," is negotiating a part in director David O. Russell's drama "The Silver Linings Playbook," based on the novel by author Michael Quick.

The film follows a former teacher who tries to rebuild his life after four years in a mental institution and would see him work with De Niro, Cooper and Oscar nominee Jennifer Lawrence.

The end of the year is always the most exciting time for true movie lovers as the studios release the films they hope to compete in the race for the many awards shows that will happen early next year. This September will have some decent films to choose from (namely "Contagion" and "Drive"), but with a greater amount of less-than-impressive fare than is normally seen. Either way, this first month in the awards season will have moviegoers flocking to the cinema nearly every weekend.

Shocking And Funny New '50/50' Movie Poster!

50/50 poster
With a poster that's as shocking and funny as the film itself, the new cancer themed dramatic comedy "50/50" has a new one sheet and it's a trip indeed. The movie, which stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a man who finds out he has cancer, is a clever mix of serious drama with bits of humor to add levity. (See Seth Rogen!) The flick also stars Anna Kendrick as Gordon-Levitt's counselor, Bryce Dallas Howard as his girlfriend and features a stand-out performance by the mighty Anjelica Huston as his over-protective mother. (Her best work since "The Grifters!") In any case the film does bring b...

The Hangover Part II
Johnny Depp set sail again last week as Captain Jack Sparrow in “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” the fourth entry in the series. After viewing the movie, I can honestly say that it’s not the best in the franchise, but certainly not the worst either. While nothing can really top the first one in my mind, this one gets back to the spirit of the original.

Captain Jack runs into an old love interest, Angelica (Penelope Cruz), who convinces him to join her on a quest for the Fountain of Youth. Sparrow unwittingly climbs aboard the vessel of Angelica’s father, Blackbeard (Ian M...
